    I'm not opposed to strip clubs.
    I'm opposed to someone using, what's supposed to be emergency need money, at strip clubs.

    It indicates one of two things, the person does not need the money or the person is using the money foolishly.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I don't think this paper is saying what you think it does.

    From your paper by the two gentleman:

    "Living wage campaigns have succeeded in about 100 jurisdictions in the United States but
    have also been unsuccessful in numerous cities."

    "Clearly these cities are not identical to cities with living wages, because ultimately a living wage
    law was not enacted."

    "Some campaigns were unsuccessful because they were derailed due to state legislation or a
    court ruling. Others failed due a negative city council vote or a mayoral veto."
    Someone tried to scan through a real research paper without a clue how to do it didn't they.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    More proof you aren't really with the rest of us here on Planet Earth.

    Why, do the rest of the people on the planet have no sense of ethics in your opinion?

    No, I except you to agree that it isn't the proper use of emergency funds.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    With all we have wasted money on during the last 30 years in taking innocent lives to benefit the rich, a poor person getting his face rubbed in some titties, in his otherwise miserable existence, is a pretty damn cool thing to have happened in my opinion.

    Why did you ask the same question if you didn't want the same answer?

    You avoided it for the most part, every other time I asked.
    Insisting that I focus on the rich or how crappy republicans are.

    This time, you say the same stuff, + you don't care, if people misuse emergency resources for non emergency things.
    Just don't ever question another person's ethics, because the misuse of money in such a way, is unethical.
